We have eight active icebreakers to the US navy's three!
But honestly no. Our regular force infantry (three regiments) and armoured (one regiment) capability are world class, but small. They use the LAV-III and the Leopard 2A6 - two current-generation vehicle platforms. They are battle tested from recent experience in Afghanistan and they could plug into any modern Nato force anywhere in the world, and do us proud. If it were to come down to a classic set piece infantry battle against equivalent US units, it would be serious fight.
The reserve/militia system is widespread, but not well equipped. We have a special Ranger group that is like a like militia for the north, using semi automatic refiles and snowmobiles. That's almost a unique capability as it's a region where the US would have to (and trains to!) use paratroopers to fight a ground battle.
Our air force is multirole (meaning without dedicated air superiority or ground attack capabilities). That service is provided by the CF-18, an aging airframe. Our air logistics capability is sufficient to move light infantry, but we have to rely on our NATO partners - recently the US - to help forward deploy our armour.
Our navy centers around some multirole frigates that were designed with an anti-submarine capability in mind, back when fleet-level engagements with a major power was a critical requirement. They have seen action off Somalia. We also have two diesel submarines. That's also like a capability that the US doesn't have, since they stopped using diesel submarines decades ago. And anyone who has seen "Down Periscope" knows a diesel can win! We have two fleet logistics ships, but I think one is completely down after a fire. The frigates use Sea King helicopters - flexible, but very old.
Wow that’s very interesting! Thanks! Nice to know that we’re still doing pretty good internationally. Out of curiosity, how could a diesel submarine be better than a nuclear sub? The diesel is much smaller and has to refuel much more often.
